Ah, the old Phantom of the Opera look.

I see you pack him a nice little lunch to snack on lest he get famished between naps. :ROFLMAO:
This little one STAYS eating! He literally ran and skid across his tile floor to catch a wayward cricket, and then sprinted back to the other side of his enclosure to gulp a bite of salad... as if it were going anywhere, as if it hadn't been in there ALL DAY.😂

On that note, though, I had a concern I hoped you might weigh in on. Frank had small crickets today, and they looked kinda big for "small," so there I was, measuring them with a little piece of tape and comparing it to his eye-space. They were small enough, so I offered one. He ate it, no prob. I fed them one by one and he had no problems eating like 20, jumping at me for more. He was clearly managing them just fine, and I gave a few at once, so he could actually chase them... And chase he did. He went after them so quick, he got 3 of them AND a piece of bell pepper into his mouth before gulping it down! 😱 I was shocked, but he just dashed off after the rest, and went about his business of eating, basking, hopping, etc.

Should I do something different? I tried verbally reasoning with him, but he wasn't particularly receptive. 😬

He is a very pretty boy and I'm really looking forward to see more of him in the future :)

What in particular are you worried about in terms of the eating? That he might get to much in his mouth at once?

Active is good 👍 if he is willing to chase food, let him. It's good exercise 💪. They can become INCREDIBLY lazy if hand fed, so if he hunts I'd call that a win 🙂

Yes, I worry he tries to swallow too much at once. 😶

The issue is that there's also the ugly stereotype where 'women are so hard to understand and never say what they want or what they mean'. We do though. And the only reason people believe this is that once they make it clear that they can't handle us being frank, we don't tell them things anymore. The context is important.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
